Miyano's ABX Super Turning Center models ABX-51TH3, ABX-51THY and ABX-51THB are equipped with two spindles and three turrets. They are capable of processing complex parts efficiently in a single setup. The ABX-51TH3 has upper two turrets on the left and right side, both with Y-axis controls. A lower turret, capable of working on both the left and right spindles, makes a total of 36 tools available to perform complex front and back operations simultaneously. The ABX-51THY has the same features as the ABX-51TH3, but adds a Y-axis control to the lower turret. The ABX-51THB features an independent B-axis lower turret that further simplifies the machining of angular features. Both the ABX-51THY and ABX-51THB incorporate more powerful motorized turrets, allowing for heavier cutting to be performed by the live tools.

  • Are Bar Fed Machining Centers the Next Big Thing?

    Advanced mill-turn machines with bar fed material handling can overcome several inherent weaknesses of production machining on vertical machining centers.

  • The Evolution of the Y Axis on Turn-Mill Machines

    Introduced to the turn-mill machine tool design in about 1996, the Y axis was first used on a single-spindle, mill-turn lathe with a subspindle. The idea of a Y axis on a CNC originated from the quality limitation of polar interpolation and the difficulty in programming, not from electronic advances in controls or servomotor technology as one might commonly think.

  • Swiss-Type Machines: More Than Just A Lathe

    CNC Swiss-Type machines have more capability built in than ever before. Many of these capabilites can be accessed using attachments that increase the throughput of the machine tool, improve the quality of the work coming off the machine and reduce or eliminate the need for secondary operations even for very complex workpieces.
